BarbX Automated Control System reporting

Date: 08/09/2023, 19:21
Location: Sol asteroid belt, 27.3 degrees offset
Event: Unusual electromagnetic radiation detected at bearing -10.1 degrees by 8 degrees from travel path. [See signature data capture]
Analysis: Repetitive patterns indicate possible intelligent origin. No known probes or space vessels are reported lost in this region.

Requesting authorization for course correction.
Course correction authorized by onboard Automated Control System.
Reporting to ground control: overridden by Automated Control System. Reason: Unnecessary risk to ship equipment or personnel.

----------------------------

Date: 08/10/2023, 02:01
Location: Sol asteroid belt, 27.3 degrees offset
Event: Unusual object detected at bearing 1.2 degrees by -0.2 degrees from travel path. [See optical image capture]
Analysis: This object is the source of the unusual electromagnetic radiation first detected at 08/09/2023, 19:21. Optical chromatography indicates that object is of metallic [iron, titanium, aluminum] composition and is embedded into an asteroid of typical elemental composition for this region. Imaging indicates that the object is made of smooth surfaces and sharp angles, possibly indicating a man-made object.

Requesting navigational waiver for minimum safe distance.
Navigational waiver granted by Automated Control System.
Reporting to ground control: overridden by Automated Control System. Reason: Unnecessary risk to ship equipment or personnel.

----------------------------

Date: 08/10/2023, 04:15
Location: Sol asteroid belt, 27.3 degrees offset
Event: Close approach with navigational hazard. Within 1000 m of asteroid at bearing 45.1 degrees by -0.1 degrees. [See optical image capture]
Analysis: This object is the source of the unusual electromagnetic radiation first detected at 08/09/2023, 19:21. Detailed optical analysis indicates that the unusual metallic [iron, titanium, aluminum] deposit is of man-made origin. Matchpattern failure with any known type of spacecraft or space-borne equipment suggests alien origin.

Requesting authorization to realign main antenna to bearing 45.1 degrees by -0.1 degrees and initiate transmission.
Antenna realignment authorized by Automated Control System.
Reporting to ground control: overridden by Automated Control System. Reason: Unnecessary risk to ship equipment or personnel.
